Department of History & Geography


Located on the RiverPark campus in uptown Columbus, Georgia, the department houses faculty with expertise in British, Asian, Middle Eastern, Latin American, African American, Ancient, Medieval, Military and International, Native American and United States history.  Courses in Urban Geography, Cultural Geography, and Geographic Information Systems enhance the research and employment opportunities of our graduates. Class size is small, and faculty members advise all majors and remain actively involved in their academic progress. The department organizes trips to local and regional historical sites and makes available to all students numerous internships and other learning opportunities.
